The spring is worth a visit if passing and is very easy to find. Only a short stay around 30mins will suffice.

We stopped off here for about 30 mins. It's good to see the geothermal spring. Small area to view, nice to feel the warm heat on a cold day! Glad we dropped by.

The largest geothermal spring in the world is worth snapping a few photos. You can buy tomatoes grown in the adjacent hydroponic, geothermally heated green house on site for 300 Krona

You can see the results of this spring from miles approaching, and they are certainly quite intense up close. Just a mild scent of sulfur, not too bothersome. You can do this stop in just a few minutes, very easy access from the carpark.

This isn't a very big attraction, but is interesting if one has never seen a big hot spring. The spring is noteworthy in it's output which is enormous. The grounds are well kept and safe. You can buy thermally grown tomatoes on the grounds

It was crazy to see how much water flows out of it, and how they have the pipe system into the towns set up. Worth a quick stop if you're driving by.
